No day-night Test during Australia tour, Team India tells CoA

Adelaide Oval won't host an ODI on Australia Day next year while the fate of the day-night Test remains in doubt

Adelaide Oval won't host an ODI on Australia Day next year while the fate of the day-night Test remains in doubt

India is going to start their Test campaign against Australia in Adelaide, which also happens to be one of the favorite stadiums of India to play outside the country.

The statement comes after CA released its entire 2018-19 worldwide fixture, comprising of 22 matches across the formats, without confirming whether it would continue its recent tradition of hosting a pink-ball match at Adelaide Oval.

For the past three years, Adelaide has hosted a day-night Test. CA did not declare the match timings for India's opening Test, taking a similar approach as they did against South Africa in 2016, where the timings were announced almost two months after confirmation of the dates.

Reflecting on the same, chief executive James Sutherland said, "It is our preference that we play India in a day-night Test match in Adelaide, but we are still working through this detail and hope to have an answer on this in the coming weeks".

The Gabba Test however has been shunted to the Australia Day weekend in January when Sri Lanka will play a day-night fixture in the first Test of a two-Test series featuring another game in Canberra.

A start time for that clash is yet to be confirmed, with Indian officials reportedly reluctant to agree to a day-night Test.

The Tests against India will be followed by three One-day Internationals (ODI) from 12 to 18 January.

However, Australian men's global summer will start at Perth Stadium with an ODI between Australia and South Africa on November 4.

The series continues with the Boxing Day test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from December 26 and wraps up in the New Year at the Sydney Cricket Ground (Jan. 3-7).

The newly built Perth Stadium will make its debut as a Test venue when it hosts the second Test.

The series against India also promises a celebration of Indian culture.

"We have some of the best players in the world and I think the fans will appreciate the opportunity to see them on one of the biggest TV days of the year being AFL Grand Final night".

New stadiums in Perth and Adelaide have leapfrogged the outdated Gabba, where Australia has traditionally played the first test of each summer and not lost since 1988.

CA has yet to confirm the dates of the domestic season, but it is likely to include an expanded Big Bash League season of 43 games.
